		}
	}
}

Use this command to specify the SNMP engine ID of an SNMPv3 agent. This ID is a unique hexadecimal string that is used to identify the SNMP agent for administration purposes. The engine ID is used with a hashing function to generate keys for authentication and encryption of SNMPv3 messages.

CAUTION:

If you have SNMPv3 USM users associated with an SNMP engine ID, do not change or delete the value of the SNMP engine ID. The plaintext password that you enter for an SNMPv3 USM user is automatically encrypted using the Message Digest (MD5) encryption. The encrypted password is stored internally for use while the plaintext password is not saved or stored. The encrypted key is based on both the plaintext password and the engine ID. If the engine ID is changed or deleted, the stored encrypted keys for the SNMPv3 users become invalid. You will then be required to add these users to the SNMPv3 configuration once more to have these SNMPv3 users become valid in the vRouter again.

Use the set form of this command to specify the SNMP engine ID of an SNMPv3 agent.

Use the delete form of this command to remove the SNMP engine ID of an SNMPv3 agent.

Use the show form of this command to view the configuration of the SNMP engine ID of an SNMPv3 agent.
